Interesting!
May I join in?

'Jessie' is my english name, which is simillar by my real name : "Jisu". My dad chose it for me :)
And 'Yun' is my last name.

0404 is my birthday!
Surprisingly my birthday is April 4th! So my friends often get shocked by this truth...
I hope you can't get shocked! :lol:

Mine comes from the fact that I have chronic Lyme disease, and those of us who have it term ourselves 'lymies'. Not all that exciting, more sad.

I couldn't quote you, Campbell, since the thread is locked now, but I didn't know that Mine was really just off the top of my head...maybe because I love cats? I don't really know :lol: It's not all that exciting, but there it is :lol:

Hey, well usernames that come off the top of your head are just as valid as those which have a deep meaning!

I hate autocorrect...sorry, part of my first message probably didn't make sense! What I meant to say was this:

Two of my favorite old school cartoon characters are Mighty Mouse and Felix the Cat. How's that for deep meaning? :wink:

I've been using this screen name just about everywhere since about 2005, so if you ever come across a mightyfelix anywhere on the web, it's probably me. It's very rarely already taken when I try to use it. (And I think some of those instances were an old login of mine that I'd forgotten the password for.)

I have been using Boomcoach since the late 90s.

I threw boomerangs for a number of years, and got a small group of friends interested and we would throw together. I was the most experienced and could usually help with problems, so they started calling me coach, hence Boomcoach (plus, no one else uses it, so I don't have to be Boomcoach79145).

Well ... my father, long since gone, used to paint -- mostly farm houses and landscapes. He signed all of his work Wedge (Walter Edge), with the sizes of the letters tapering down from the W to the e. So ... Nedge. (Nancy ... Edge.)

Tovarisch,
I actually looked up your username in a dictionary once...I don't know why. :lol: It means something like 'comrade', doesn't it? :)

I KNEW it! That is just what I thought of when I first saw it.

Remember “Popeye” or The Pink Panther? Good memories of watching them at my Granny’s as a kid. 8-)

I have watched some episodes from all 4 of those shows (and I'm not even 18!). I love them, their so hilarious. Actually, I think I started watching them when I was like 8?
